Océ Document Designer features a classic desktop publishing look and feel, and provides
easy to use design and advanced data handling to create attractive, customized documents.
For designers, it supports traditional platforms and tools such as Mac OS X, Quark and
Adobe InDesign. For IT users, the software integrates with standard production platforms,
manages input from multiple sources, and handles output in any volume and in multiple
formats.
A highly intuitive GUI interface and WYSIWYG layout and proofing let users see exactly
what they are doing. Automated management of forms, images and fonts; dynamic table
generation; and workflow wizards simplify even the most complex projects.

What's New in Version 6.2
2 What's New in Version 6.2
2.1 New Features in 6.2 Beta Release
2.1.1 General
■ Projects in the recent files list – The Workflow window File menu displays among recently opened files also project files.
■ Log window-pane scrolling enhancement – It is possible to stop/hold scrolling of the
Proof and Production log-messages by clicking within the log window-pane in the required spot. Selecting the Scroll to End option from the log window-pane context menu
scrolls the log-messages down to display the newest one.
■ Customized character encoding for IPTC keywords – It is possible to customize character encoding for IPTC keywords via a command in the CONFIG file.
■ Overriding the user's name in the CFG file is possible – A CONFIG file command allows
to save the settings in the CFG file according to the current user's name.
■ PDF version 9.0 – The PDF library installation has been updated to version 9 in order
to support PDFs edited in the current Adobe Acrobat version.
2.1.2 Workflow
■ The List recursively option in the Cross Reference Browser Dialog – Listing files from
sub-folders as well as the defined folder is possible.
Native Import
■ Native import without elements – The option Create elements from overlays in the
Native Import Advanced Options Dialog can be unchecked so that imported objects
are placed on pages without being grouped by elements.
■ True Type font support in AFP native import – The True Type fonts are supported,
with the exceptions listed in the AFP Native Import Known Limitations.
■ Processing of AFP files has been optimized – For processing natively imported mixed
mode AFP files the Pagedef is accepted when needed, but is not required, if not necessary.
■ Support for multiple AFP resource directories – The AFP Import dialog enables you
to select multiple resource directories if needed.
■ BCOCA support enhancements – The Royal Mail, MaxiCode, PDF417 and the QR
barcodes support has been implemented.
■ DeviceGray colorspace conversion for PS and PDF – If a PS or PDF file contains
DeviceGray colorspace and it is to be imported into a workflow, the colors are assigned
to either RGB or CMYK via the PDF Import options on the Workflow Options dialog.
■ Maximum file size and number limit for cached data for files imported natively in
Layout and/or through the PnetT Native module – The limit values for cached data can
be edited through the CONFIG file.
5
What's New in Version 6.2
■ Possibility to force user selected text encoding for the imported PCL file – Enabling
the Force default for all check-box allows proper display of text when editing the
imported file in the Text in Rect module.
■ Highlight color mapping in the PCL Native Import Configuration – The Color dialog
allows to map specific colors to highlight colors used in the imported PCL file.
■ Transparency flattening – It is possible to merge transparent objects into a non-transparent bitmap in the imported PDF file.
■ INDD files import – With the Adobe InDesign installed locally, INDD files can be
processed in Océ Document Designer as PDFs or viewed when:
■ imported natively via the PNetT Native module or using the Import | Native option
in the Layout File Menu,
■ inserted into Layout as an INDD image,
■ dragged-and-dropped into Sheet Proof or Océ Document Designer Viewer.
■ Import of layered InDesign and QuarkXPress documents into Océ Document Designer–
Layers in InDesign documents are imported into Océ Document Designer as separate
Object Groups. This makes it easy to manipulate with the layers. If there is only one
layer, all objects are placed directly on the page. For the QuarkXPress documents, only
objects from the Default layer are always exported as independent objects directly onto
the page.
■ URL links in files exported from InDesign – URL links from InDesign are supported.
2.1.3 Data Input
■ DBF7 support – You can feed DBF files version 7 through the Data Input module.
■ Different TSD file structure allowed – A TSD file loaded via the Internal Input module
can have a data structure different from the workflow, e.g. unused variables can be deleted or new added. Océ Document Designer displays only a warning.
■ Skipping SAP input file header – In the PNetT.config file you can set that headers of
SAP input files will not be read and checked for correctness, which is useful in case
that the length of the header is not in accordance with the file format specification.

What's New in Version 6.2
2.1.4 Data Processing
■ Data Remapper module – Data can be assigned to a new (imported) data structure using
the Data Remapper module.
■ Enhanced data extracting for sending personalized emails via Email Gateway – The
Email Gateway Data module included into a workflow allows reorganizing the input
data into an input CSV file for Email Gateway. This way, within one workflow, you
can easily generate all files (e.g. CSV, PDF, HTML) needed for email sending via Email
Gateway.
■ Field sorting – The order of fields in the data structure can be changed via the Field
order area of the Data Transformer module.
■ Editable path to cache – The path to cache files in the Data Cacher module is editable.
Also a relative path can be entered.
■ Indication of disabled MinMax Generator – A better indication of the disabled status
has been implemented for the MinMax Generator module.

used in Layout that are not present in the font applied. If such characters are found a
warning is generated. The functionality can be switched on by enabling the option
Undefined character check in the Layout Options dialog.
■ The number of merged table borders put in overlays can be controlled – With the
Overlay Properties settings it is possible to limit the merged table borders put in overlays,
and further decide how they are handled, in order to optimize memory usage during
processing.
To set the default number of overlays used for merged table borders generally (not only
for current Layout), you can use a command in the CONFIG file. It is especially useful
for workflows created in Océ Document Designer version 6.1 and earlier.
■ Chart formatting options – The size of charts can be adjusted to fit all point labels
within the chart border by using the Scale to fit option on the General Tab. Also, point
labels' position can be optimized.
■ Messages modified according to the customer ID – New condition type Listed customer
IDs has been added to the rules for modification of messages. This feature is intended
mainly for campaigns created in PrintNet Interactive.
■ Message category scripting methods can return integer values – From version 6.2,
message category scripting methods return string values. It is possible to have them
returning integer values by enabling the Interpret message category in script as 'Int'
option in the Layout Options dialog.

Changes in Default Setting
3 Changes in Default Setting
This section lists differences in the application’s default settings with the previous version
(applied to Beta and GA versions).
■ The option Merge static object into overlay in the IPDS Engine Config dialog is now
switched off by default.
■ PPML resource name is now a hash number which is the same for each resource ID in
every run.
■ The calculation of the week of year in the Parse Date Time field conversion has changed.
Week 1 is the week that includes the first Thursday of the year.
■ The rounding in tables when calculating the cell width changed and in a few specific
cases it may happen that one more line would fit into the flow area.
■ Due to a new PDF Library the value returned by the Max image color saturation field
converter is slightly different.
■ The Native Printer Engine has been renamed to the Desktop Printer (driver) engine to
avoid confusion with PNetT Native engine and other 'native' features of Océ Document
Designer.
■ Sheet Names in scripts are now referred to by an index starting from "1" (instead of
starting from "0" which meant that Sheet Name "0" referred to the actual "Sheet Name
1" in scripts). For (backward) compatibility with jobs created in versions 6.1 and
earlier, the Index Sheet Names from zero check-box is available in the Imposition
Script module.
■ The original JPEG image stream (JPEG compression for JPEG images specified in the
Group Handling options) is now used in the PDF output only when no changes are
applied to the original JPEG in Layout. Otherwise, it is recompressed.
■ Océ Document Designer gradient can specify extents with any colors. If the left extent
color is different from the first gradient color, or the right extent color is different from
the last gradient color, special handling of the situation has to be performed when generating a PDF file.
I.e. by inserting a new, very small, gradient interval at the beginning or end of the
gradient, respectively.
Formerly the right extent interval used to be considerably larger than the left one.
However, the right one now corresponds to the left one.

Overall success:
100%
The testing sheet contains the item Overall success that is calculated from all of the performed testing scenarios and the number of Level 1 and Level 2 bugs that have been recorded. The testing scenario contains two parameters that are evaluated:
1. Assessment involves the evaluation of a selected testing scenario according to the
current error rate and according to the concept of any tested section from a personal
point of view.
2. Importance expresses the significance of the testing scenario for the whole product.
20
Testing Results
Both parameters can register any value between 1 and 5 (where 1 is the worst and 5 is the
best value) and they are also involved in the overall statistics. The Importance parameter
usually registers a value from 3 to 5.
Example: An assessment with the value 4 represents a decrease of overall success even
though there is no record in the Known Issues. The value 4 can be caused by the presence
of minor issues that have not been included in the overall statistics.

Known Issues
6 Known Issues
6.1 Issues Known at the Time of GA Release
6.1.1 Level 1 Issues
No Level 1 issues have been detected.
6.1.2 Level 2 Issues
#69323 – AT#22307 In imported AFP documents containing relative-metrics fonts with
a defined underscore, Océ Document Designer may display the underscore line incorrectly. The line can be shifted and its thickness may not correspond to the set values.
Fixed in versions: 7.0.7.0
#69326 When a job with the IPDS output is printed via the Océ Document Designer
console and the job is autorestarted, an exit code 03 (Error logged) is returned instead
of an exit code 0 (No error).
#69344 When the following conditions are met:
■ several external flows are used from one external workflow
■ the Evaluation Statistics feature is enabled
Then the statistics are reset (and do not display correct values) for all external flows
from the external workflow when using one of these external flows for the first time.
Fixed in version: 7.0.7.0
6.1.3 Third Party Issues
#21609 PDF library issue on two-processor machines – Océ Document Designer will
crash when spooling a large number (thousands) of PDF images.
#24984 If a PostScript2 file, used as an input file in the PNetT Native module, contains
a general mask object that is filled with an image and if the mask is defined inside an
overlay, then the Normalizer will convert the file incorrectly.
#28019 Wiziway barcode – Incorrect barcodes are created due to an error in the TagGener.dll file – a proprietary customer’s solution.
#34792 If an attempt is made to run Océ Document Designer using a Citrix client then
Océ Document Designer does not open because it cannot find system fonts. It searches
for them via the path c:\Documents and Settings\"user"\WINDOWS\.
Workaround: Set a system variable CX_FONT.
28
Known Issues
#65904 PDF import – If transparency flattener is applied, some glyphs might be replaced
by incorrect (different) ones.
Workaround: Use the option Convert all text to outlines in the PDF&PS Import
section of the Workflow Options dialog.
#65905 PDF – If transparency flattener is applied, new images are created for all original
images which had the DeviceCMYK color space set (i.e. they had no ICC profile).
These new images are assigned the US Web Coated ICC profile. This results in color
differences between images with and without this profile.
Workaround: Select the US Web Coated ICC profile in the CMYK profile combobox on the Graphics tab of the PDF Engine Config dialog. This ICC profile will then
be applied to all images.
29
Known Limitations
7 Known Limitations
7.1 General
a. PS like – Using large raster images as a text fill style can slow down printing speed
because the whole image is used for each character.
b. The Japanese KAJO font is not displayed correctly as the FreeType interpreter
has different behavior than Windows.
c. It cannot be guaranteed that text using the Big5 encoding will be displayed properly
in Océ Document Designer. Océ Document Designer uses the Unicode standard
to which the Big5 encoding cannot be unambiguously transformed.
d. If the user with administrator rights has the UAC function enabled, starting
PNetTNetServer as a service is not possible on the MS Vista operating system.
e. In a native AFP font, some glyphs can have several bitmaps, each with a different
code point. When a job using such a font is spooled to AFP (with native usage of
fonts), the last bitmap is used. This can cause misprint in paper output and impossibility to recognize text in electronic documents.
f. It is not possible to execute flattening of one document using parallel processing.
Even with the Parallel processing check-box in Production enabled, the internal
settings allow the document to be still processed (single-threaded) but the processing time increases in comparison to processing with the Parallel processing
check-box disabled.
7.2 Known Limitations of the 64-bit Version of Océ
Document Designer
a. Software licensing and License Manager are available for the 64-bit version. For
this version the Aladdin HASP licensing solution is unavailable, therefore neither
local or network dongles can be used.
b. The following features cannot be used with the 64-bit version of Océ Document
Designer because only 32-bit dll files are available:
a. Import of DOC files (DocCallerDll.dll library)
b. Wiziway barcode (TagGener.dll library)
c. DirecType plug-in
d. Line Data Input module
e. Condproc and PNet3
f. Mediabin
30
Known Limitations
7.3 PDF/EPS Native Import Known Limitations
Due to the high complexity of the PDF document format, the implementation of the Native
Import of PDF/EPS Files is still being enhanced.
Therefore, before running the production of a workflow file using the native import functionality, it is highly recommended to proof the workflow thoroughly.
This chapter lists the features of both PDF and EPS files that are not usable in the current
Océ Document Designer version after import of these document types using the Load
natively feature.
a. PDF transparent model (from 1.4 version of PDF). Transparency is not fully supported. It can be rasterized by using the Flatten transparency option.
However, using this option may cause some areas on the PDF page which were
previously transparent to now be opaque (solid white) due to rasterization. Layout
objects placed under the PDF image that took advantage of being visible due to
the previously transparent area might not be visible anymore. This issue can be
fixed by changing the Z-order in Layout.
Note:
The Flatten transparency feature has high memory requirements and it
is a third party software component.
b. If a font is not embedded and belongs to the 14 standard fonts defined in the PDF
specification (refer to the section 5.5.1 in the PDF Reference [http://
partners.adobe.com/public/developer/pdf/index_reference.html]), it is replaced
automatically because those fonts are contained in the PDF library directory. For
other un-embedded fonts, a message created during Production is displayed in the
log file. The font replacement rules can be set using the "Insert Font Replacement"
functionality in the Others node of the Layout Tree.
c. For Type 3 fonts, the glyphs description can contain only monochrome images
and shapes, it cannot contain a color specification. See also the Type3 Fonts chapter
in the PDF Reference [http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/pdf/
index_reference.html].
d. All patterns are rasterized (the vector information is lost), i.e. they are transformed
to an image fill style in Océ Document Designer.
7.4 AFP Native Import Known Limitations
The following features of the AFP format are not supported by the current Océ Document
Designer version:
a. Line data:
a. XMD based pagedefs
b. RCD – Graphics Descriptor (X'7E') Triplet
b. Non-presentation object containers (True Type fonts, PDF resources, etc.)
c. ACMA – AFP Color Management Architecture
31
Known Limitations
d. IPG – Include Page
e. Character precision of GOCA text
f. Barcodes:
a. MSI (modified Plessey code)
b. UPCTwo-digit Supplemental (Periodicals)
c. UPCFive-digit Supplemental (Paperbacks)
d. USPS Four-State
g. Resources inside page
h. Medium maps before page
Note:
If you get the following warning message: "The OID format of Fully Qualified
Name triplet is not supported." it means that a part of a Structured Field cannot
be parsed and read, but as it is not used during the import, it does not have any
influence on it and the AFP will be imported correctly.
7.5 PCL Native Import Known Limitations
For PCL documents' objects, i.e.:
■ areas
■ images and
■ fonts,
it is possible to apply patterns and Logical Operations Command parameters.
Native import of PCL documents into Océ Document Designer supports them with certain
limitations (see the table below).

HP-GL/2 Known Limitations
a. Text is not supported.
b. Only non-vector patterns defined inside HP-GL/2 are supported. Patterns referenced
from PCL are not supported.
c. HP-GL/2 content is not scaled in case that scaling is prescribed from outside from
PCL parts (Plot Size command).
d. HP-GL/2 content is not be clipped (InputWindow command).
e. Wedges and pen colors other than black and white are not supported.
7.6 XSLFO Known Limitations
Océ Document Designer does not support the following specifications of the FO format:
a. "Float" with anchors – Float is an object that can overflow between pages. If a
float overflows, there can be an absolute position specified to which the end of
the page should be set.
b. "Footnotes" – are appended at the end of a flow (not at the end of a page).
Example: There is a two-page document with a flow overflowing from the first
page to the second page. There is a note on the first page. The footnote related to
the note is not placed at the bottom of the first page but on the second page at the
end of the flow.
c. "last-line-…" (e.g. last-line-end-indent) – unsupported property in ParaStyle. The
properties of the last line cannot be defined because Océ Document Designer
cannot locate the last line.
d. All possibilities of formatting list blocks (e.g. bullets are justified left and text is
justified right). List blocks mean numbering and bulleting.
e. Setting of a different border style for the table header, body, footer (Océ Document
Designer only supports setting different border styles for the whole table and for
separate cells) <fo:table-body border-bottom-style="solid">
f. Setting of a fixed height for the whole table.
7.7 DOC and RTF Files Import Known Limitations
DOC import is only supported for MS Word version 2000 and higher.
DOC import can be carried out only if MS Word is installed locally. Otherwise a warning
is displayed when trying to import DOC files.
The following list of limitations contains MS Word 2007 features currently not supported
when imported into Océ Document Designer and also describes the results of import of
features which are not fully supported.
33
Known Limitations
Note:
It may happen that you find another unsupported feature than those listed below.
The reason why there cannot be a complete list is that the RTF specification is
open and new features are developed and added into the specification. However,
the import into Océ Document Designer does not react parallel to this process
and not every new feature in RTF/DOC is enabled in the import automatically.
In case that you find a feature that is not implemented nor listed among these
known limitations, please report the issue you have found, so that it can be either
fixed (implemented) or included in this known list.
Text – font format style:
■ Double strikethrough – is imported as Strikethrough.
■ Shadow – is imported as plain style (without shadow).
■ Emboss, Engrave – is not imported, i.e. the text to which these styles have been applied
is missing.
Text – underline style:
■ Words only – is imported as plain underline style (continuous, including spaces).
■ Wavy – is imported as plain double underline.
Text – other features:
■ Column format – is imported as plain text without columns.
■ Initials – the initial letter (in the size as defined in the document) is imported one line
above the text.
■ Decimal tabulator – works with all kinds of decimal delimiters except for the space.
Tables:
■ Nested tables – are not imported. Only the basic table (level 1) is imported. The text
from the nested table, if there has been any, is kept in the basic table.
■ Rotated text in tables – is imported as non-rotated.
■ Borders – only solid borders applied to cells or the whole table are imported.
■ Shading – only solid colors are imported.
■ Wrap anywhere – is unsupported for long texts in cells (and in text boxes).
Lines and shapes:
■ Lines and shapes – are unsupported. The import results in showing only the bounding
box (rectangle of the line or shape size) and the line-style used, i.e. only rectangles with
solid borders can be imported correctly.
■ AutoShape – is unsupported. The import results in showing only the bounding box
(rectangle of the shape size).
■ WordArt – is unsupported. Word Art objects can be imported as PNG images if storing
as PNG was allowed in the DOC file.
34
Known Limitations
Images:
■ Image types – Import of images is restricted to image types supported by Océ Document
Designer. Import of any other image type (e.g. EMF) results in showing the sample
image in Layout and the note that this image is "invalid" on the Image tab of the sample
image.
■ Image position – Images (and other kinds of objects) may change their position after
import into Océ Document Designer.
■ Crop from – is unsupported. The import results in showing the whole image.
■ Image control (post-processing of images) – is unsupported. This feature can be used
e.g. for setting an image to greyscale or black&white. The import results in showing
the original image. Océ Document Designer features in Layout (Advanced tab for the
image) and in output engine must be used.
■ Wrapping style (Runaround) – "In front of text" style is imported as "Behind text",
which is the default Océ Document Designer style.
Page size:
■ Page size – If there is a document with more pages of different size, the import results
in importing the pages all in one size only. The size of the first page of the document
is used.
Equations:
■ Equations – are unsupported. Equation objects can be imported as PNG images if
storing as PNG was allowed in the DOC file.
Text boxes and frames:
■ Text boxes – are imported as anchors. Supported features: border lines, dashing, line
style, filling with color.
■ Wrap anywhere – is unsupported for long texts in text boxes (and table cells).
■ Frames – are unsupported. The import results in expanding the text with a border to
the usable page width.
Forms:
■ Text Form Field, Check Box Form Field, Drop-Down List – can be imported. Other
form controls are unsupported.
■ Option button (ActiveX control) – will be imported as PNG image if storing as PNG
is allowed in the DOC file.
Foot note:
■ Foot note – is not imported at all.
Page numbers:
■ Page numbers – are inserted as static numbers based on the number calculated in MS
Word. It may happen that this number does not correspond with the page number in
Layout (after import).
35
Known Limitations
Fields (variables):
■ Fields – are not recognized as variables during the import to Océ Document Designer
and that is why they cannot be connected to variables. The import results in showing
the 'X' characters (which in MS Word represent the field).
OLE functionality:
■ OLE functionality (e.g. images rendered by external COM objects) including ActiveX
– is unsupported. The linked object is missing after the import.
Layout Options:
■ All of the options in Word Options (available after clicking on the MS Word icon) |
Advanced | Layout Options (at the very bottom of the Word Options dialog) – are
unsupported.
For example, the feature "Split apart page break and paragraph mark" by which you
can choose, if the paragraph mark will be displayed on the same line as the page break
or below it, is also unsupported.
7.7.1 Font/Image Replacement
If you import RTF or DOC files (or others like XML, PLS, PTF) containing fonts or images
not installed (located) on the current machine, there is a Font (resp. Image) Replacement
dialog displayed, allowing you to replace such a font/image with another one.
7.8 HTML Simple Output Known Limitations
Not supported features are listed below.
7.8.1 Text Style
a. Font subfamily
b. Superscript
c. Subscript
d. Horizontal scale
e. Language
f. Kerning
g. Image fill style
h. Gradient fill style
i. Border style
j. Line fill style
36
Known Limitations
7.8.2 Paragraph Styles
a. Line spacing
7.8.3 Tables
a. Alignment
b. Line gap
7.8.4 Border Style
a. Cap
b. Corner
c. Join
d. Shadow
e. Margin
f. Offset
g. Gradient fill style
h. Image line fill style
i. Gradient line fill style
7.8.5 Line Style
a. Dash style with more than two line gap values
b. Stripe style
c. Line ending
Note:
Employing Elements in Layout allows to use the features otherwise unsupported
in HTML Simple. The content of Elements is generated as rasterized images.
7.9 HTML Output Known Limitations
7.9.1 Known Limitations Resulting from General HTML
Principles
a. Barcodes are always generated as images.
b. Used fonts are not embedded and due to this fact, supported text could be displayed
differently from the layout.
37
Known Limitations
c. Flow areas with unsupported objects (e.g. scaled or rotated text, sections, etc.) are
rasterized and saved to the specified folder as PNG images.
d. Anchors are not supported.
e. Text with scale, rotation, skew or flip is rasterized and the quality of the final image
depends on the image resolution.
7.9.2 Website Generation Mode Known Limitations
a. HTML files generated in the Website mode, are not suitable for emails as some
email clients might not display the content properly (e.g. MS Outlook 2007 does
not support absolute positioning). It is recommended to select the Email generation
mode or use the HTML Simple engine for generating files that are intended to be
sent by email.
7.9.3 Email Generation Mode Known Limitations
a. Text in sections is not supported and is rasterized.
b. Elements (with objects having URL paths assigned) that are not at the beginning
of a line or a table cell in a flow area can be displayed incorrectly in Outlook 2007
(in other email clients the issue does not occur).
Clickable areas of such elements are placed in the space off the assigned objects
in a blank space or over other objects. The issue may additionally interfere with
the HTML document's background (if set).
38
Known Limitations
Example
Both images are placed in elements, that are placed in one flow area.
Legend
i. Clickable area assigned to the first image works correctly.
ii. Clickable area is shifted below the image that the URL path is assigned
to.
Workaround
■ Placing elements, with the URL path assigned, into separate table cells or separate flow areas assures that all of those objects are displayed correctly and
keep their functionality in Outlook 2007.
■ Making the image area, with the URL path assigned, exactly the same size as
the element box.
7.10 Metacode Output Known Limitations and
Recommendations
The output protocol in Metacode has the following limitations:
a. The maximum number of images/overlays per page depends on the printer.
b. The maximum size of a font depends on the printer.
If the maximal values are reached, the user should attempt the following:
■ Re-use the same elements as much as possible (cells in tables, images, etc.).
■ Use the grouping functionality of Océ Document Designer to create small overlays.
■ Split static and variable parts of the page, such as an empty table with border styles/fill
style and a table with variable text without border styles/fill.
